    Hi everyone,

    I treated the goats for ear mites and one is fine, but the other one I noticed was a bit "off" last night. She is not holding her ears up and when I took a look this morning she has white crusty stuff on the inside of her ears, but just at the ends. I looked down in the ear canal and it is not red. Her temp is normal, poops normal, otherwise acting normal...just "off".

    Any ideas?

    My boys will hold their ears funny after treating them for mites, I think because they don't like the feeling of the med......and mine will get the white crutsy stuff to, don't know if it is caused from the mites or the as to why the one is acting off I don't know.

    Get a temp of the one acting off...

    As to the whites at the ends.... could be from biting flies or lice.....

    clean off the white crud.... and spray with permectrin 2..or put mineral oil on it...if there are any bugs there... they will be killed off... don't spray in the ears... just the ends....and then spray down the back..... like frontline...
